Estimated Family Contribution

 

What is an EFC?

EFC stands for Expected Family Contribution.  Your Expected Family Contribution calculates your family's ability to pay for college.  It does not tell you the amount that your family will be paying for college nor does it tell you the amount of financial aid you will receive.

Why do I need an EFC?

The EFC is used by schools to determine your eligibility for federal student aid.  This is deteremined by a need analysis formula.

How do I estimate my EFC?

You can use FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) on the Web to calculate your estimated EFC. The estimated EFC will print on the confirmation page after you submit the application. Your official EFC will also be on your Student Aid Report (SAR).

"I think one of the most crucial aspects of the Daemen curriculum is the required internship. I was an accounting intern for both a private health care company and a certified public accounting firm. I was able to apply lessons learned in the classroom to real business situations. When my internships were over, each company offered me a full-time position."
